Happy Birthday Thinlits, Colorful Season, Birthday Card, Delightful Daisy

I got my "Delightful Daisy" Designer Series Paper (DSP) and was looking though it at all the beautiful designs.  This one was not as colorful as the others but it really caught my eye. I paired it up with a piece of matching Tranquil Tide cardstock. I cut the DSP 5-1/2" x 3" and I trimmed the cardstock 1-1/2" in on the top left and 2-1/4" in on the bottom left.

I liked what I saw but I wasn't sure what to do with it.  With just the DSP and the cardstock, it hardly qualified as a card.  I wanted something white.  I thought about making a white scalloped oval, but what to put in it???  

I was looking through my stamp sets and found the large "Happy Birthday".  I LOVE larger images, stamped or dies because they take up a lot of real estate!!!  I used the double sided sticky sheets to make affixing the words so much easier.  I put the cardstock on the sticky sheet and then I die cut the words.  I removed the protective backing and stuck the words in place.  SO simple and quick.  I did have to laugh at myself, I was going to add the words, I turned them over and opened up the "Fine Tip Glue Pen" bottle and I was actually going to try to glue it in place.  I am losing my mind!!!  Before even one drop hit the backing, I remembered that all I had to do was remove the protective layer and I was good to go.  So once I got the words on I thought the card needed something else.  Fortunately I had some flowers left from the "Colorful Season" and I set one in place and I liked what I saw.  And that is it!!  Super simple, quick and easy.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
